ICWM Members

Since the programme’s inception in 1983, a total number of 99 candidates have qualified to obtain the title of Cape Wine Master.

A further 3 (Colin Frith, Phyllis Hands and Dave Hughes) were awarded honorary membership, which brings the total number of Cape Wine Masters to 102.

Over the years, and for various reasons, 22 members have since resigned from the Institute of Cape Wine Masters, and a further 4 have passed away. Therefore current membership consists of 76 Cape Wine Masters. Of these 76 members, 13 live overseas, as far away as the USA, UK and Australia.
